wendy gold imaginations diy kit

{ please visit imaginenations here }

Every single wishlist I have contains something globe related. There are globes scattered throughout my home and I find myself perusing the internet for hours on end, ogling any and all globe related art projects/diy projects/home decor, etc. It would be impossible for me to even speak of a theme such as “We Heart It” and not touch on my love for all things globe. However, I have standards. I don’t just covet any old globe that circles by. There has to be something compelling, something mesmerizing, something outstanding to pique my interest.

Wendy Gold of ImagineNations has been on the top (absolute top!) of my wishlist for some time now. When I say I covet one of her decoupaged globes, I say it with a whisper because I am afraid I will scream from excitement when I talk about them. My personal favorite is the Peace Globe. But a close runner up is the Not All Who Wander Are Lost Globe.  Honestly? Every single one of her creations make my heart beat a little faster and I hear oceans in my ears if I stare at them too long. Perhaps her most inspired idea yet is Gold’s creation of DIY Kits so that you, too, can decorate your world to your liking. Le sigh.

ImagineNations is giving away two Travel DIY Kits to two lucky winners! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Friday, February 17th.  Comments now closed! Good luck!
If you were told to pack a bag tonight and take a vacation anywhere in the world (all expenses paid, of course!), where would you go?
Please begin checking the winners box on February 27, 2012 to see if you’ve won. Good luck!

    We’re experiencing gorgeous weather in So Cal and it makes me wish I was at the relaxing at the beach instead of working so I would definitely hop on a plane to a tropical local like Martinique, where I would have nothing more important to do than lay out.

    I would head off to Florida, making sure that my dad came with me as the last time we went (we are from the UK) he was too ill with renal failure to come with us but now he has had a transplant it would be great for us all to go!

    Without any hesitation, I say Iceland. Any time of year. I’ve wanted to go there since I wrote my first multichapter research paper on it in my sophomore history class—in 1996!

    When he doesn’t work at the headquarters in DC, my husband’s job requires him to move to a different country every 2-3 years, and luckily I get to go with him. We’re currently living in Africa, so I would use my all expense trip to go home to visit family. It’s hard being so far away.

    (PS, the DIY genealogy kit would be perfect to track OUR journey around the world. So awesome!)

    I think I would go to Hawaii – I find it to be so peaceful and relaxing with a touch of touristy attraction thrown in. I would love to travel the world but right this second I would just like a peaceful break. Bring on the umbrella drinks! Thanks for the chance — have a wonderful weekend 🙂

    I’d love to visit Japan, and be able to explore all of the natural areas of the mountains and various islands. I’ve watched too many shows about traveling through Japan…

    Galapagos, without hesitation. I’ll just have to remember to pack the ‘Master and Commander’ soundtrack!

    Cheryl says:

    I would go to the country where all of my ancestors came from, England.  Being interested in genealogy has brought me closer to my ancestors and their lives.  It would be pure joy to visit the country of my forefather’s nativity. I would love to wander the roads they wandered, see the countryside and feel the history of my people.

    I would definitely head to Italy! And I’m hope to stay a very long time. 🙂

    I would go back to Rome in a heartbeat. It is my most favorite city in Europe. I’d spend a more leisurely time if I could, savouring the little details, lounging in cafes, watching the locals, admiring the energy of the place. I love Rome. I’d live there if I could!

    i’d backpack all over Europe! (with my husband, of course) 🙂 i’d visit all my college study abroad places – my favorites were Paris, Florence and Bruges. (sigh)

    i’d travel through the southern US. i’ve always wanted to road trip from CA to FL through the south.

    Lindsay says:

    This might sound a bit strange but I would love to go way up North in Canada, probably to Resolute Bay or Alert (the highest settled locations in the world!). It costs thousands of dollars to fly up there because its so remote but it would be absolutely amazing to see the way of life up there, not to mention the northern lights!

    Kristen Hughes says:

    Alaska! True, it’s a place I’ve spent most of my life, and have been there a million times…but I live in Florida now. My sisters…they are my best friends, and I miss them so so much. We have so much fun when I go there, going to all the places we grew up that we never realized were so special until we were too old. And I have a nephew now. When you haven’t had children yet, seeing your sister, especially when she is younger than you, create another perfect human being who looks like us….it’s a miracle that is hard to be away from!

    Alexa F. says:

    I would love to go to European and Mediterranean countries with the fella (who studied art history) and hit up all the amazing architecture, art, museums and hiking. And, of course, the awesome food!

    I would pack as quickly as I could and go back to Tanzania….I was there volunteering there, working with those in hospice and palliative care. I became dear friends with an amazing African family….they have carved a special place in my heart and although I haven’t seen them in 4 years..I think about them daily.

    I’d say Japan or New York, so different from each other but both so fascinating!

    I have recently been researching flights to Turkey. I have wanted to go for years… maybe this will finally be the year?

    India! It seems so mysterious and magical- all of those sights and sounds and colors and fabrics and smells and spices! Oh and I might need to do some Bollywood dancing while i am there too 😉

    Beverly says:

    I would pack my bags and scurry over to Croatia in a heartbeat. I’d love to soak in the beautiful scenery, the mountains, the coast, the islands, and the jade-coloured pools. I would love to experience the blend of Mediterranean cultures in this lovely country, breathe the beautiful air and imprint the scenery on my mind forever!

    I would go to Greece to see the architecture – also Santorini in Greece.

    CupcakeCaliBride says:

    What a great idea! If I were to go anywhere, I’d go to Greece. I studied the culture in college, and I’d love to see in person the temples and artwork that I studied!

    There are so many places I’d love to go, but since it’s getting cold I’d want to escape to Barcelona. Great giveaway, thanks!

    Bekki says:

    I love to travel and have found wonderful people and experiences everywhere I’ve been. But I’d like to go somewhere calm, beautiful and somewhat spiritual with my husband, escaping the busy pace of life here outside Washington DC. So I think I’d pick Bali! Not sure we’ll get there and it is sooo enticing.

    Valerie G. says:

    Just found your site via Daily Candy and I love it! So sweet and inspiring. It’s cold here in Colorado, so I’d head somewhere warm and tropical. Maybe Tulum to get a dose of culture + beach!

    Maddie says:

    I would head directly to Thailand. It’s about time this nyc girl gets lost in a tropical forest.

    I would pack my bags and go straight to Singapore! I was there last Spring for a quick 2 days and it wasn’t nearly enough time to do everything I wanted to do and see

    England!! Despite being born in America and being very proud and loyal to my country, I know deep down in my innermost soul, I am British. That being said, I have yet to travel to the motherland. I long to go there!

    Well if it’s a vacation and all expenses are paid I’d love to go to the Philippines. It’s a huge part of my family’s culture but I’ve never been there.  I grew up with all the influences and the language all around me but still I’ve never been.  I have family there that I’ve never met but have corresponded with over the years.  How wonderful it would be to travel there and meet them all.  Although I have been told I wouldn’t be able to handle the bugs or living situations of some of the areas my family lives in so I better have money for a nice hotel…so they say

    I would love to be transported to Africa to see the Serengeti Plain where the wildebeests migrate over a thousand miles!  And their friends the zebras and gazelles.  Imagine what one would see, smell, hear and taste!  Oh yes, let’s go!
    Thank you!

    I would immediately fly to Monterey, California and play the Pebble Beach and Spy Glass golf courses (maybe twice each).  Then, I would hop back on the plane and fly to St. Andrews, Scotland where I would play the Old Course and Carnoustie.  From Scotland, I would travel to Phuket, Thailand to enjoy some down time on the beautiful beaches, enjoying the delicious local cuisine and contemplating this wonderful globe and it myriad of wonderful opportunities for wonder and awe.

    Greece with an emphasis on the Corinth region. My paternal grandparents were both born in this region. There is a village or two who’s name is the root name of our long Greek name (yes it is pronounceable!) So I would like to spend some of the time researching our family, some time traveling around with a guide and some time in a lovely guest cottage in the perfect village overlooking either the Aegean or Mediterranean Sea. And of course taking at least a week of so sailing the islands.

    I would choose my older sister to come along for several reasons. She’s been to Greece several times and since she’s battling ovarian cancer I would like her to see Greece at least once more (poor prognosis). We would stay at least a month to do the experience justice.
